Sick Leave Email to Boss for Food Poisoning & COVID
1- Sick leave email sample for food poisoning
Subject: Sick leave for food poisoning
Dear Mr. Peter John, I am writing to you to inform you about my illness. I have been diagnosed with severe food poisoning which has left me bedridden and in acute pain. I have been prescribed bed rest and medication by my family doctor for the next three days. Due to this reason, I will be on leave from 25th September till 28th September. I have attached my medical reports and doctor’s notes with this email.
As the doctor has recommended I must limit my screen time and take a rest so I won’t be available for remote work. I will, however, be available to answer any urgent emails regarding our project.
I can also be contacted at my landline number [X] in case of emergencies. I have asked Tracy and Abby to take my place for the next three days and take charge of the logistics of the project that was assigned to me.
I have explained all the work that needs to be done to meet the deadline of our project which is 30th September.
I am hopeful that they will be able to manage the work in my absence. I have instructed them to contact me in case any issue arises.
Looking forward to your cooperation in this matter.

Subject: Sick leave email for COVID Positive
Dear Mr. Ryan Olson,
I am writing to inform you that I have been diagnosed with Covid-19. I have been feeling dizzy and unwell for the past two days and I took a few tests yesterday which included the test for Covid-19 too.
Unfortunately, it came out positive. I have attached my test results and doctor’s note with this email for your reference. I will be in quarantine for the next two weeks or until the infection clears and the test comes out negative. I have advised all the people I have been contacted with for the last couple of days, to take the test too.
I will be available to work from home and will stay in touch with my team members over email and zoom meetings. I have already discussed the matter with my teammates and advised them to go ahead with the work in my absence.
I will be on duty from home as per the previous schedule which is 9 am to 5 pm. In case there is an urgent issue, I can be contacted through my landline number which is [X] after 5 pm as well. I assure you that the pace of our work will not be affected, and we will be able to meet the deadline of our project.
I apologize for the inconvenience and hope that we will be able to work this out together.
Thank you for your consideration
